Palm Harbor man dies in Dunedin crash

DUNEDIN — A Palm Harbor man was killed when his car swerved off the road in Dunedin early Friday morning, authorities said.

Shortly after 2 a.m., Matthew W. Vonderau, 31, was traveling north on County Road 1 in a Ford F-150 pickup truck, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

He lost control of the truck for unknown reasons at the intersection of County Road 1 and Hickory Gate Drive, south of Curlew Road and west of Belcher Road, the Sheriff's Office said.

The vehicle swerved off the road, struck several trees and flipped over, ejecting Vonderau. Dunedin rescue workers responded and pronounced Vonderau dead at the scene. No one else was injured.

Alcohol use appears to be a factor in the crash, the Sheriff's Office said. Deputies continue to investigate the incident.
